Description: This Polish flutist, relocated to New Zealand, offers a program evenly divided between New Zealand and Polish composers. Kilar's youthful Sonatina, in bright neo-classical vein, is the earliest piece here (1951) and fellow Pole Wos' sonata is the other work of significant size. A neo-romantic piece in the traditional three movements, it uses a folk song from the town in Herzegovina which is part of the sonata's title, as well as the melody of the Litany of Loreto. Two of the New Zealanders, Ritchie and Williams, make use of Polish folk music while Gao Ping paints a short, impressionist piece. Body's complete piece, derived from Pygmy tribes, has already appeared on this label and in these pages (09O073). Adrianna Lis (flute), Sarah Watkins (piano).
